San Nicola Dog Rescue: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

We received a grant of P.L.A.Y. beds for dogs. We are so grateful!

These beds save us so much time washing them. Dogs love them; they are soft and cozy AND they can be washed in the washer, which is so important when you have a lot of dogs and a lot of beds. Not only do they fit in the washer, but also they are stitched across several times and don't tear or get clumpy.

How many pets did this grant help?

58 over a year

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Kona, a Lab/shepherd mix (first photo), had hip dysphasia surgery and spent a lot of time lying down during recovery. He kept choosing his P.L.A.Y. bed over other beds. I think it was because the P.L.A.Y. bed provides the right balance of softness and firmness — it doesn’t sag and doesn’t get clumpy; it’s like a firm mattress. Kona is awaiting surgery on his other hip and we hope to find him a home after that. Probably we’ll have to send a P.L.A.Y. bed with him 🙂

The second photo shows Kayla (the cattle dog), trying to fit with Gris in the same bed. Kayla has been adopted.
